Thank You dosborne, my hands are tied somewhat and I felt unable to say that this was impossible, so I just hoped for a knowledgeable poster and there you are.
That's what computers are made for. I certainly don't expect EV CSRs to do it. Analysis of the exceptions found by software would be a job for EV employees.At the number of PPV film ordered every month do you really think that we will go throught each film make that verifcation?
Do you think it would work? I figured it wasn't worth while trying to package up the dish because of the size and the cost it would take to ship it somewhere.why don't you sell it on the digital home buy and sell thread.
Good questions! The equipment was provided initially under contract. Back in Oct/06 when I canceled my contract, I wrote BEV "... and instructions regarding the disposition of the equipment." The only response I received regarded the return of the HD box. They abandoned the dish & the 4100 receiver. As far as I'm concerned, I own it now. Just out of curiosity, couldn't a new owner of the receiver just plug & play?Do you own the 4100? Or is it a rental? If it was a rental they should of took it back. You also can't sell it if it was a rental.
Good estimate on your part. I just looked up past sales of 4100s on *******. The range is CDN$58 to $99 with shipping included. Maybe it is worthwhile advertising it for sale on the buy & sell thread.50 for each
Doubt it - would have to contact BEV to get it authorized on their account and that's when it would likely become known whether you or BEV owned it. If you do want to sell it, you really can't avoid contacting BEV again to ensure the receiver is no longer associated with an account so a purchaser won't have any problems getting it authorized on their BEV account. I know when I've bought used receivers I actually call BEV in the middle of the transaction to ensure there won't be any issues with getting it set up on my account.Just out of curiosity, couldn't a new owner of the receiver just plug & play?
I never bought it, it & the dish were supplied when I subscribed to their service. I assumed ownership of it as they abandoned it. I had written to them asking about what they wanted me to do with the equipment and never received a reply about the 4100 & the dish. They had sent me a return box for the hd receiver.Doubt it - would have to contact BEV to get it authorized on their account and that's when it would likely become known whether you or BEV owned it.
I was in touch with BEV and they still had the details of my account. I asked if someone else was to call to have it put onto their account, would it be possible? The short answer was no. Are there any other options for me in selling this. I certainly wouldn't sell it without disclosing my conversation with BEV.If you do want to sell it, you really can't avoid contacting BEV again to ensure the receiver is no longer associated with an account so a purchaser won't have any problems getting it authorized on their BEV account.
When I terminated the account, BEV said the account was disconnected, not simply deactivated. That said, there's no way I'm going to get re-involved with them.If your account is still active, the receiver might still beactive too...if the person who bought it just plug it in he would get YOUR programming. Also if he orders PPV they will get billed under YOUR account
If your account is deactivated you still have to call ExpressVu to advise them that you gave away the receiver or sold them, oterwise the client won't be able to activate it. At the time they will also let you know if it was a rntal unit that needed to be returned. If that was the case, you would have received an invoice, a few weeks after the account was closed, charging you 84$ for non return of equipement
